Indigenous Surfer and Shaper Jalaan Slabb is Making Waves

One could say that Jalaan Slabb lives her life similar to the waves she surfs every day. It’s always fluid. Somedays she’s out on the water surfing, and others she’s busy tinkering away in her shaping bay creating surfboards. Recently the 16-year-old crafted a surfboard for two-time World Champion Tyler Wright. However, the throughline that connects everything she does is her love for the land and the ocean. As an indigenous woman from the Coodjinburra clan of Bundjalung nation, Jalaan uses her heritage to draw inspiration for her work. She grew up hearing stories about her ancestors and their reverence for their surroundings. Jalaan took those lessons to heart, and hopes to inspire the next generation with her work.

I love her courage in living out there near the sea and in nature. It’s like she managed to separate herself from society to focus on living the best out of her life. I do adore her passion for the sport. Thanks for sharing this! Septic Replacement

If you really want to disconnect from the modern world and live a simple life, I think surfing is one of the best sports that complement that lifestyle. Living beside the sea or ocean and doing what you love every day. That is definitely the dream. Thanks for sharing this! Septic Repairs
